Notes

United States Copyright Law states that the work of the Hussalonia founder will fall into the public domain 70 years after his death.

The founder does not want you to wait that long.

This EP is being released directly into the public domain. The songs and recordings are not subject to copyright laws. You are free to copy, distribute, sample and/or create derivative works. The Hussalonia founder waives his right to royalties, effectively making these works ideal for use in film, television, video and/or any other commercial application. By publishing these files on archive.org, Hussalonia founder has agreed to the following terms:

"Dedicator recognizes that, once placed in the public domain, the Work may be freely reproduced, distributed, transmitted, used, modified, built upon, or otherwise exploited by anyone for any purpose, commercial or non-commercial, and in any way, including by methods that have not yet been invented or conceived."

John Lennon once said, "Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think they own it."

That didn't stop him from cashing his royalty checks.

Included in the zip file is an easy-to-assemble slip cover for your burned CD. All you need is a printer, scissors and glue. Also included is a song booklet with the full lyrics and guitar chords for those of you who wish to record your own version of the Public Domain EP. If you wish to download these files seperately, they located under "other files" near the bottom of the page.

You are the public, these are your songs.

Subject: Download it! Be subversive!
These are excellent songs, but that's only half the reason you should listen to them. As Hussalonia announced on his web page (hussalonia.com) on July 22, 2013, there's a company called the Royalty Free Institute that's selling these songs as "Royalty Free Rock Music." Selling. As in, they're charging money for something the content's creator is explicitly giving away for free. Here!

So I, for one, plan to never do business with the Royalty Free Institute, and beyond that I encourage you to download the music here - because it's good. And doing so is now subversive.

This has to be the anti-anthem of anti-anthems! Releasing it into public domain was the crowning touch! Any sheet music or lyrics?

Well, what can I say? I didn't understand the whole lyrics since I'm not a native english speaker, but the bits i got are pretty amazing. Now music is all about tunes as well and even if I'd be illiterate I couldn't help myself and just looooove this music for ever.

Thanks a lot for this amazing gift.
